Feed Starving Elephants

Elephants have been the hardest hit animals in the current Covid-19 pandemic and many are facing death by starvation.  STEF has launched a major appeal to help them, and you can help us by DONATING to our appeal.  UK Tax payers can use GiftAid and increase your donation by 25% at no cost to you.

Domesticated elephants in Thailand rely entirely on income from tourists, but since Thailand went into lock-down at the end of March, tourism has all but ended and it could be months before visitors return.  Elephant parks and camps have had to close, leaving elephant owners with no income and yet having to take responsibility for their elephants.

It costs at least £12 (13.50 Euros or $14.70) a day to feed one elephant.  That’s £84 (95.30 Euros, $103) per week, or £360 (408 Euros, $441) per month.

Your Support

None of what we do and aspire to do can be done without your support which shows us you care about our work and about the animals we love and protect.
There are many ways you can support us.

Please donate

We are a small charity with a lot of concern and affection for elephants and very serious ambitions for the future. We wish to show by example what can be done to help, conserve and preserve the Asian elephant in safe and secure surroundings in Thailand.

We will carefully monitor all projects that we support to ensure that your generosity makes a real difference right where it is needed. We have virtually no overheads, so your contributions fund projects in Thailand to help the elephants.

Fundraise for us

Please help to fundraise for us in any way you can.
You can collect donations for any sponsored event or appeal. Please contact us and we’ll be happy to help you.


Many of the projects we work with are often looking for Volunteers, for example to help with creating and maintaining a centre for the Asian elephant. All applicants must be committed to elephant welfare, education, learning about the Asian elephant in Thailand and be prepared to work hard. In exchange, the projects can offer a very rewarding stay and a life-enhancing experience with elephants. If you are interested, please contact us in the first instance and we can advise you of opportunities that may be suitable for you.
